Dream For Three

Three Years Have Passed

Today it is three years since we moved here!

It is a beautiful spring morning, the sun is shining, the birds are singing, all those spring things are happening.

Looking back, we have come along way in the preceeding three years. We love this lifestyle, something that many can’t cope with, but for us it is, now, the only way to live.

So to take stock. We did not do lambs this year, after such an awful year last year, don’t know about next year ¬†yet. We have been getting our own milk for the last 10 months, and I would rather go out and milk the cow in the rain, than get our milk out of a bottle again. It is just that much better.

The side shoot of having a house cow of course is getting a calf to raise for the freezer. It doubles as a back up milker, ensures that the cow is properly stripped out several times a day, keeps the milk supply up, as well as feeding us in the end. Too many advantages not to do it.

This year we have some of the chickens in a chicken dome, so they are doubling as garden labour right now, as well as the eggs. This has to work out as a good thing since it saves us work. The chickens seem really happy and are due for there first move in the dome.

All in all a very good three years, and we look forward to many more to come.
